A two-day professional development course in power engineering presented by the Australian Power Quality and Reliability Centre from the University of Wollongong.
The rapidly increasing volume of renewable energy generation (both large and small scale) has resulted in a renewed emphasis on power quality (PQ). Combined with the application of power electronic equipment such as variable speed drives, management of PQ remains an important challenge in order to ensure that electronic equipment such as digital controls, computers and sensitive process control equipment operates as intended. This course will focus on power quality in renewable energy generation rich environments. The course will give a practical understanding of the principles, practices and problems associated with grid connection of these resources. Further areas covered in the course include the operation, control and protection of distribution networks, network planning and reliability aspects for facilitating integration of these new generating sources.
